Memorial Day 2013

  1. Amen!

    It is heartbreaking that so many Americans rarely think of the fallen and their families.

    1. Those of us who've worn the uniform (at least, most of us,) think of those who've made the ultimate sacrifice, and their families, on an almost daily basis. Memorial Day is everyday for us, AOW.

      Just some of the many things that degrade our mortally wounded combat heroes: businesses and their Memorial Day Sales, a day off from all our 'trudges' to barbecue and play horseshoes, . . .

      I've just had a news crawl across my iPad: "Watch LIVE as President Obama lays wreath at Tomb of the Unknown Solider" -- that HAS TO BE the ultimate degradation. Just go play your usual round of golf, Bathhouse, and leave our fallen to rest in peace.

    2. I don't watch Obama place that wreath. My blood pressure is too high as it is!

    3. Just the thought of it makes the blood vessels in my head start to explode, AOW.

  2. With that you have said it all. Thanks, my friend!

    1. All we can do is try to live for them and to take care of their loved ones in anyway that we can, JB. That's the least we can do.

  3. Nice tribute, Mac.

    PS: I am now proudly carrying my concealed permit weapon in my cute wallet, while wearing bright colored tennis shoes. Be afraid of a little old lady in tennis shoes, be very afraid.

    1. Three rounds, center mass. Dead men tell no tales.

    2. Make that a double tap. Anything more than that and the court's gonna say it was overkill and you'll probably be in the hurt locker.

      Just saying.

    1. I keep trying to go to your post, WHT, but my computer keeps telling me that you've got a virus or something! It didn't start up until the 31st at some point.

      You just GOTTA do something... you do nice work!
